Huckberry and Buffalo Trace, the famed whiskey distiller behind Pappy Van Winkle and other dreamy drams, teamed up on a special one-of-a-kind premium bottle that goes far beyond your ordinary liquor store staple.
Typically with Buffalo Trace, a wide array of different barrels are carefully blended together to produce the familiar bourbon. But for this, Huckberry went through an extensive “barrel pick” process, where they sniped a unique individual barrel before it hit the blending process. They ended up going with barrel #124 after a thoroughly boozy tasting adventure, which they describe as "sweet, full, easy drinking, with a longer finish.” Pour us a glass.
And though it won't be easy to get a bottle on the bar cart, it won't be impossible. The retailer isn't selling any bottles directly — most are being saved for friends and family — but two lucky people will be able to score via an Instagram sweepstakes running from now until Wednesday, Dec. 23. They also have 10 bottles available for $49 USD at Nob Hill Liquors in San Francisco, which are sure to go fast.
